Okay, I’ll admit this is an easy blog for me to review, as I’ve been reading Gemmak nearly daily for months! She is a self confessed computer addicted cat lover living in an idyllic rural area of Scotland, making her irresistable to me from the first day I opened her first page. She’s charming, intelligent, sassy and has a rollicking sense of humor, with enough style and class to not only create her own beautiful space, but to help many others with theirs as well.
This week, for example, she’s guest hosting for a blogbuddy in Chicago as well as keeping current with her own. Like a beloved Auntie she worries about doing an interesting enough job for her friend and wants to be sure she hasn’t let anyone down. She stays very current on many current event topics and her opinions, although always polite and mannerly, are very firmly her own. She’s willing to call a spade a spade when she deems it neccessary, yet has never failed to present herself in a most amusing and ladylike way. She really enjoys her life, her friends, her worldwide connections and never fails to come up with the most interesting goodies to add on or into her forums.
Her blog is endlessly beautiful and constantly changing. As a truely virtuoso template tweaker she’s always on the hunt for new and different ways to add color, links, animations, and more different odds and ends of ever fascinating stuff then any site I’ve ever seen. She’s forever thrilled with the new and unusual in blogland, yet can always find the time to help anyone who asks for her assistance, and is happy to do so. This lady appears to have the unusual ability to find at least 25 hours in each and every day, and enjoys many of them finding extra special things to blog. All of her links work every time, and she has many many blogging friends all over the world. Gemmak’s place makes a terrific launching pad for at least a week of endless entertainment following links, she has a true knack for finding really great writers, fascinating friends, and fun things to see and do. No matter how often she changes it or how many things she adds, it’s always pretty, logically ordered, and simple to navigate around in.
Quite simply, Gemmak has created and continues to create the epitomy of what blogging is, or should be. An interactive forum complete with shoutbox and many many comments and commenters, a piece of ever changing visual art, a thinkers forum for idea exchanging worldwide, and a fun place to hang out. Her blog invites more then daily visiting since it’s a safe bet that every single visit will produce something new to enjoy. If I had to find one single thing to critize about it, it would only be the possibility that the reader could be quickly addicted, and perhaps lose track of time spent in Gemmak’s world. Of course, one could always request that she give a quick ‘wake up call’ to those who need to leave the premises at a particular time, for she’d be happy to oblige nearly any request from a reader.
If there were a score higher than 5, Gemmak would rate it, for like a fine hotel, her quiet good graces create an atmosphere of luxury and elegance. If she would only serve tea and finger sandwichs occasionally, I’m not sure I’d ever wish to leave her hospitality. This reviewer says 5 plus for Gemmak, jolly good blog indeed!gemmak’s BLOGS
